Jaguar Land Rover is offering its owners with InControl Wi-Fi access to a prepaid unlimited data plan for US$20 per month which it says makes it, “Easier and more affordable for owners to stay connected while on-the-go.”
The company says that when a data signal is available, users of InControl Wi-Fi have access to the latest in infotainment services, including Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities that allow passengers to connect up to eight devices to the service for fast access to the internet.
The technology relies on a fixed antenna mounted to the vehicle, in the same area in which the AM/FM radio antenna is housed; with the company adding that its size and location have been designated to assist the vehicle in accessing stronger signals and provide reliable internet connectivity across a broad range of the country.
“Wireless connectivity and connected car services continue to be a key driver for new vehicle purchases, so we’re happy that this attractive price will provide Jaguar Land Rover customers with an enhanced ownership experience through the use of all the Wi-Fi enabled benefits,” said David Larsen, Jaguar Land Rover North America Product Planning Manager.
“We’re proud of our role in delivering our latest affordable unlimited data plan to Jaguar and Land Rover owners,” said Joe Mosele, vice president, Internet of Things Solutions, AT&T. “By accessing the internet through the AT&T wireless network, passengers can now enjoy their content and entertainment on the go.”
According to the company’s website, Jaguar Land Rover customers in the UK can use the wifi technology but must source their own sim card and data plan.
